Today there is a big rally outside the United Nations building in support of Israel. Thousands are gathering to hear motivational speakers and rally their support for Israel. Personally I think rallies are wonderful opportunities for the Jewish community to come together. My question is why do we always come together when the situation is difficult? Wouldn’t it be wonderful for us to come together to celebrate Israel’s technological advances or the continued survival of our people amid challenges? My hope and prayer is that in addition to coming together to support Israel in the difficult war it is fighting, we also will come together to support our people’s accomplishments and achievements. In addition to being united in times of war, let us also be united as one people to showcase all the wonderful things that Jews are doing throughout the world.
